Twelve-Step Facilitation Therapy | West Hartford Psychotherapy, Addiction and Spirituality Services

Twelve-Step Facilitation Therapy

You are invited to an in-depth exploration and comparison of your own understanding versus the traditional understanding of the Twelve Steps of any of anonymous fellowships. Celeste Emelia Mattingly, LCSW also uses a synthesis of various therapeutic techniques which are geared towards helping you achieve your abstinence and mental health goals as quickly as possible. Twelve-Step Facilitation (TSF) therapy is especially useful if you have been unable to reach your goals with traditional program attendance alone or with psychoanalysis with other providers.

Celeste Emelia Mattingly, LCSW is a therapist who will challenge you to abandon self-defeating defense mechanisms, which are the root of relapse and are often missed with meetings alone. You will learn to acknowledge hidden underlying emotions to yourself, and the people important in your life and your recovery. The rewards of this therapy are dramatic and sustained healing in a relatively short period of time. If you are seeking to break free of old patterns, assume control of your life, and develop your core self you can benefit greatly from TSF techniques, which are fully integrated into talk therapy sessions with Celeste. Call today and schedule your appointments to discover your best course of action to bring about desired changes in your life.

twelve promises

If we are painstaking about this phase of our development, we will be amazed before we are half way through.

(1) We are going to know a new freedom and a new happiness.

(2) We will not regret the past nor wish to shut the door on it.

(3) We will comprehend the word serenity and we will know peace.

(4) No matter how far down the scale we have gone, we will see how our experience can benefit others.

(5) That feeling of uselessness and self-pity will disappear.

(6) We will lose interest in selfish things and gain interest in our fellows.

(7) Self-seeking will slip away.

(8) Our whole attitude and outlook upon life will change.

(9) Fear of people and of economic insecurity will leave us.

(10) We will intuitively know how to handle situations which used to baffle us.

(11) We will suddenly realize that God is doing for us what we could not do for ourselves.

(12) Are these extravagant promises? We think not. They are being fulfilled among us—sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly. They will always materialize if we work for them.
